Last week’s opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture was enveloped by a three-day music festival, with performances from folk instrumentals to poetry to dance to hip hop. The artists talk about the importance of political leaders such as Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., and President Barack Obama in bringing the museum to life, and the unique place African American sounds have and will always have in American society.
